    Hmm, maybe I do a bit. I haven't heard of that comic, what's it called?

    Also, I was wearing sunglasses at the time, but my brother told me in good humor, that I looked like this guy with the way my hair was styled:

    Vito Scaletta from the video game Mafia II. I'm not complaining, it was a compliment, and I'm a huge fan of the series, but my hair color and complexion's different.

    Classic Men's Hairstyle of Golden Age

    Hi All,

    Not sure as I am a newbie if on the right thread but trying to join discussion of Golden Age Hairstyles that many have asked for ideas for men on.

    My favorite, and the one I have is a Classic Tapered Short Back and Sides with hair long enough on top to part or more often slick back with a good pomade.

    I am growing mine out more to offset some thinning :( but no more than a few inches on top

    In my Thumbnail I have it very slicked back - Yea for Murray's Super Light!

    Pop sensation Bruno Mars has been sporting a late 50's- early 60's Doo Wop/ Soul style pomp. I'm no fan of his music, but I think that's a pretty cool thing.

    He was also the youngest Elvis impersonator in the film Honeymoon In Vegas, so perhaps his heart is in the right place!

    Ok this might be a stupid Question for some of you 50's fellas out there, but I have mostly gone with 30's 40s hairstyle, but I am looking to try something a little more 50's esque this fall. getting the cut is relatively, but the styling is a little harder for me. any help would be great.
    I am going for this kind of look:

    That style pre-dates me, but that is a cool look. That's the Ritchie Valens,Bobby Rydell, " Kookie 77 Sunset Strip" look! Good Luck show us the results.John

"I have a few things on this weekend and needed a Haircut, my Hairdresser suggested something different, and feeling adventurous, I let her go for it, the result is a very smart Haircut,but I look like every other "Faux Hawke" & "Troll Doll" in town, ... she explained that it is more modern, ( I said I had this type of haircut 10 years ago!!!! so i am invisible one of the Hoi Poloi,, lager louts, for a few months, a sabbatical from a short back and sides"...... it will be interesting"

    it's called 'piet pienter en bert bibber' and i don't think it's ever been published outside belgium... the humor is typically flemish and it now is quite unknown even in flanders. i do think it deserves a bit more attention though, since the stories are really awesome!

    As I've said before, slick the sides down and back towards the nape of your neck. It's a lot cleaner that way, IMO.

    And keep that part sharp, of course.

    I would agree with Jan. If you comb the sides backwards instead of straight down, it will look a bit sharper.

    I got my haircut today. Brian's Barbershop in Silver Spring Maryland.

    I will probably slick it back a bit more, but it didn't want to go today.

    Good haircut there, Yeps!

    But in order for me to comb my hair back instead of down at the sides, I will have to use more pomade and Brylcreem than I have been using there up to this point... I guess a little dab doesn't quite cut it for that in my experience, believe me I've tried. My hair is actually very straight, and relatively think, for the record. It can fly away pretty easily if I don't add enough cream or pomade, specifically towards the front.

    What brand pomade do you use?

    My friend has exactly the same hair you do, and I used a little amount of Sweet Georgia Brown (purple can) pomade and his hair swept to the back perfectly.
    He of course, didn't know how to do it himself, so I had to do it for him.

    It's all in the technique. Just like getting a sharp part or a good sweep in the contour.

    I'm working on growing mine out to style like James Callis in Eureka. A nice member over in the Beauty forum gave me a couple tips to take to my barber, so as it gets longer I guess we'll see how it turns out. It does take a good bit of will power to not go and cut it all off like it was. I haven't had longer hair in quite some time so its a pretty big change for me.

    Yeah, I have pin straight hair, although very thick and heavy, and it is quite a challenge to keep it from just falling forward. Murry's Original works pretty well though.

    Are you talking to me or Blondie? I use Murray's

    I too have thick, straight, and heavy hair, but it keeps in place just using Murray's Super light, with some original on the sides.

    Heh, Blondie. That was a great movie.

    I'm not sure if it is technically "pomade," per se. It's Dax Wave and Groom, a hair wax. It's pretty hard stuff in the container, but it's great as far as hold is concerned.

    Alright, thanks. I wasn't sure about that because it was advertised as wax when I bought it.
